See You at the Dog Show
A preview of the National Dog Show and the MetroKids Fun Zone this coming weekend
You know the dog show aired every Thanksgiving after the big parade? Don't just watch this year. Be a part of it with us.
As we may have mentioned a time or two recently, the Kennel Club of Philadelphia hosts The National Dog Show at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, Nov. 16-17. MetroKids is pleased to be part of it, as sponsor of the Kids Zone all day Sunday. From 8am-5pm, join us for canine crafts, face painting, caricatures and the chance to win some of the hottest toys in kid-dom, just in time for the holiday gift season.
As you navigate the rest of the show, make sure to enjoy the dulcet tones of John O'Hurley (enter to win his Dog Show-inspired kid's book here) and take the sage touring advice of co-host David Frei. Here's the official schedule of events.
